I'd like to introduce my open-source IRC client named Loq.

http://loqirc.sourceforge.net/
http://sourceforge.net/projects/loqirc/

Apparently It works well with MS IE, Mozilla Firefox, and Apple Safari.

It's got a tiny Java applet(4 KB), good amount of JavaScript (3000+ lines), and some HTML files.
As you might expect, It relies on LiveConnect.

Since the project was my first time using Java and JavaScript 4 years ago,
it's got some awful code especially in Java applet.

Here's some screen shots

Well, the project has been nearly abandoned for the last 4 years.
I brought it back from the grave recently.
I'm currently thinking of tabbed ui replacing popup window.
Probably i'd implement Mac dashboard widget out of it.

I just hope you find this interesting and would like to share idea.
